Silk Ribbons are on my mind. It's time to add the Silk Ribbon technique for the Sunflower and Berries canvas (ND 309). Just a reminder: next month, I will be teaching this class at Nashville Needleworks and In Stitches Atlanta. Give them a call to join in the fun. I have so many things to share with the students. I will also be teaching at The Bristly Thistle in October 2012, too... if that fits better for your schedule and location. Hope to see you there.
I used the River Silks Ribbons for this project. It was my first time to use the 13MM size. So lovely. It unfurled off the card and was ready to use. So pretty.
Over the years, my stash of River Silks Ribbons has grown. One might even say... has grown out of control. This week, I decided it was time to find a better way to store and organize my ribbons. After all, they needed... deserved... better respect than to be jumbled up into the same bag.
Here is what I found: a nice group of stackable containers. The transparent plastic allows for a quick glance.
Now, the 4MM ribbons are separated from the 7MM ribbons. The 13MM ribbons are safe, too.
|4MM - box 1|
|4MM - box 2|
River Silks Ribbons are sold individually; available from your LNS. They have over 240 colors; both solids and patterned. They come in 4MM, 7MM and 13MM widths.
Have you seen their wonderful collections of ribbons grouped by theme or color?

How do you store your ribbons? Separate or together with your other threads?
Lana says any way you do it, it's all good. Until the next time.... Hugs, Robin
